In writing moment, June 2011, I have just finished the tour with Tio Fötter, with the play Alice i Ondalandet. The group went to Copenhagen/Malmö at the ASSITEJ festival.

I will travel to Turkey on vacation and to Finland to join Celerses Nordica for jousting show. In september I will work again as a dramacoach in the project Distinkt Dam. http://www.distinktdam.com/
Now, in February 2011, I will write a short note again, beforhttp://www.distinktdam.com/e leaving for N.Z. My partner and colleague Anders from Tornet Productions, is competing in jousting. Later I will produce my new showreel with help from Irene www.hogbergmedia.se. I will also work as a dramacoach for women entrepreneurs for Dramadam and Distingo. I will continue to work with The Police Academy and a new play with Tio Fotter, written by John Fiske.
Next year, 2011, we will do a new play at the theatre out in the forest, Knight Pappiljott, written by Daniel Cramér -the planning has just started. I will probably also produce a play with my partner from Tio Fotter and the Military job, Bjorn Dahlman, at the oldest café in Uppsala (again). In Oktober I worked as a dramacoach in a project with female entrepreneurs at the scene in the forest. I coached the gorgeus ladies and they put up plays and my partner Anders, made three main courses to us. It was a very special and lovely task for us. Dramadam & Distingo (Maj Lundell) was the heads of this new idea, with money from Tillvaxtverket.
Right now it is autumn and me and my colleague from www.dramadam.se, Ulrika, is out in Women Prisons, with drama & motivation courses. We will be touring the hole country until December. I will also do the last tour with Tio Fotter in November and I will play the main part in their new play in 2011. I worked with the Police Academy and the Swedish Probation Service again, but unfortunately, I have less time to do this kind of work, which I really love.
Summer went with a lot of vacation. I went with my Love to Kebnekajse, climbed the top. Went to Finland withe the Celeres Nordica Knights and Higgins. Lovely trip and shows in the hot sun. Kåre took such good care of us, we went to their play "Robin Hood" and the ruin of Raseborg at the evening party. Higgins were strong, despite the very hot sun and the Finnish and Swedish knights were putting on a great show. I love Finnish people! They are so strong and direct and just loveable.
In the writing moment, it is soon beginning of June and we started the child play in the Forest. We had premiere for Kris, KrAmi and MOA; parents & Kids and it was a great sunny day. We will play for schools as well and this weekend we have 2 open shows. I just participated in small part in a Swedish drama serie, to come. I got myself an excellent agent: www.nebulaproduction.com , who will take care of my business from here on. I went with my partners from Tio Fötter to Bibu, the child theatre festival in Lund, which was hilarious. I will take time off this summer, except from some work with The Police Academy and a Meisner course in August. http://www.studiomeisner.se/index.html The coach, Emelie Nyman is outstanding.
This spring, 2010, I will continue the tour with Tio Fötter, "Släpp in mig" (Let me in) www.tiofotter.com, in Upland.
We are playing Tornet in May, for schools & for The Swedish Prison & Probation Service. We started a new production company and our new homepage www.tornetproductions.se, was made by Johann Gustavsson at www.pophunters.com Check it out !
When I have time, I will help the Jousters (Celeres Nordica) with their show, as a dramacoach. I will travel to New York with my family soon and in April I will take a sunny beachy vacation with my Love.

What happened the year of 2008: AUTUMN; I played "Kvinnofilten" at womens prisons all over Sweden, worked for the Military, SUMMER; I took time off from theatre to be on jousting tour with my Knight and his horse Higgins in France and Norway. SPRING; played "Oxygen" at Uppsala Konsert and Kongress, presented by Lars Bohlin from the University of Uppsala. The author Carl Djerassi from U.S, talked after the performance. This was the first time the play was set up in Sweden. Director was Gustav Uddgård.I have also been rehearsing a 50/60:s show with Sofia Nordström and Anders Forsslund (http://www.forsslund.com/). The second part of the short movies about Bruno is now produced and on the clip-board. Michael Thonfors did the shooting, as always and Johnny J. directed. This year I am building a theatre out in the forest with my new partner Anders Fernstedt, from the 1251-pilot movie. I did a very small part in a coming movie, "Dimensionen", by stunt coordinator Lars Lundgren and Björn Hellqvist, you cannot see me! The trailer is great, I hope to see the Swedish science fiction soon! I did a little commercial thing for Tv4 and voicejob. In December 2007, I helped Johnny J. to produce a short movie, shooting at Gottsunda Dance & Theatre. Michael Thonfors (from 1251, Bruno, Dimensionen), did the photographing. "2about6" is the name, and what Johnny wants with this is pretty clear, when You see the last scene. It is about to be sent to Film festivals and will hopefully be a movie for discussions.
The play, "Den Jaktade" (http://www.denjaktade.com/) with premiere 13:th of August -07, at Hallwylska Palatset (the beautiful yard of the museum), in Stockholm. It went fine and we had a lot of people coming to see us, - and good weather almost every night. This autumn contains most of all work for the Military and also the start of a new project, a show, with Sofia Nordstrom and Anders Forsslund. More info about this to come.
I worked for the Military Police spring -07, (Combined Challenge-07) and in March, I produced a short movie in Uppsala with my partners Johnny Johanson (from Stairs), writer and director - and Michael Lechner (from the Bear) as the main character, "Bruno at cafe".

The autumn 2003 I worked at Gottsunda Theatre in the play "Katitzi", by Miriam Anderssson. At the same time we played "the Pledge" at Mosebacke Etablissement in Stockholm, late September. Went fine!
The spring of 2003, I worked on my play "The Pledge". Premiere was 4:th of April 2003, at the Ekocafe in Uppsala, later that autumn, we played six performances at Mosebacke Etablissement in Stockholm.
It is a drama about three women, that made a promise to each other when they were teenagers. The promise is now fulfilled and the consequences is right upfront this afternoon at a cafe. Memories from their youth and friendship is coming up, both good and bad ones... We got lovely reviews in the paper, and my experience from this work is: "no pain, no gain"...
In May 2002 I put up part one in the trilogy, in cooperation with Gottsunda Theatre in Uppsala. The play is called "On the way to...Shire". It had three actors, and a little "Tarantino"-feeling in it.Click on Link! It was set up 18:th and 19:th of May on a tavern in Gottsunda Centre and made quite a success. Continuing will be hard, since one of the actors are moving up north, to enter the Teaterhogskolan !
Congratulations Henrik! Well...You never know..."The Pledge" is part two in the trilogy.
The Autumn of 2002, I worked on the dance and theatre production "I am Alice", written by Malin Axelsson. A lovely group of actors and dancers, who made friends forever.
